October 8th, 2015: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Bridgeport, Ct. – Homeowner Melvin Wilkes of Bridgeport has enjoyed an electricity bill of $0.00 for the past 3 months, thanks to a new initiative to make solar available and affordable to all homeowners in the state with houses suitable for solar, regardless of income or credit score.
The new program, called “Solar for All,” is the result of a partnership between the Connecticut Green Bank and PosiGen Solar Solutions, and its goal is to ensure that all homeowners in Connecticut have the opportunity to install full-size residential solar systems. For the next 2 months, greater Bridgeport homeowners who sign up for a new solar electricity system can enjoy a great low introductory price for the first 3 months. Even better, if 25 or more homeowners sign up, the introductory price for everyone will extend to a full 6 months, and if 50 or more homeowners sign up, this great pricing will extend to the entire first year.
As a result of his savings (those $0.00 power bills), Mr. Wilkes says he signed up at least three more homeowners on his block in just one morning. And while zero cost electric bills are not typical even with solar panels, Mr. Wilkes’ outstanding savings show the fantastic potential and power of solar to save families money on energy bills each month.
State Representative Andre Baker was pleased to see this opportunity offered to his constituents. “After attending the kickoff and speaking with PosiGen,” said Rep. Baker, “I decided I would get my own roof appraised to see if solar power can work for me too.”
The Green Bank and PosiGen Solar are also excited to work with local non-profits to help get the word out to area homeowners interested in reduced their own energy costs. Two outstanding community non-profits, Operation Fuel and LifeBridge Community Services, attended the Solar for All launch event to learn more about how solar can save money for families in need.
The new program will last through the end of November 2015, so homeowners are encouraged to contact PosiGen today to take advantage of this exceptional opportunity to become a solar home in Bridgeport.
